The Cultural Anthropology minor introduces students to the traditional four-field approach to the study of culture. While the introduction course covers all four fields with a focus on cultural anthropology, students are also encouraged to develop competence in the other three theoretical fields (physical anthropology, archaeology, linguistics), and to choose from a range of electives to examine issues in anthropology such as the study of religion and/or specific cultures and/or a particular region of the world (i.e. Africa, Asia, Latin America, or Native America).
